Every year it is a challenge to figure out what would make a special birthday for Matthew and this year was no exception seeing as we are living in a new place and don't know a lot of peopleMatthew celebrated his 3*th birthday last week. I made a Peach Raspberry Buckle for dessert which turned out pretty tasty (if I do say so myself ;).
This weekend we went to Denver for a mini-vacation. It was Free Day at the Denver Zoo so we enjoyed a winter day at the zoo which is something I've never done before. This picture of Matthew with the giraffes in the background was taken in the same spot where I was sneezed on by a giraffe as a kid. The giraffe was leaning over the rail and there were a bunch of kids standing close to get a look, then all of a sudden the giraffe sneezed cover us in giraffe snot--gross! I cried and cried but my family thought it was hilarious!
It snowed on us at the zoo on Saturday and put a couple of inches over Denver. Sunday we went to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
